Poison for the Heart



1 / 2

The Infinite

Dust to dust

We come from dust, we are dust, and return to dust. Thus is the unchangeable nature of God. Behold immortality!



Jesus said "I am with you always": this is such a beautiful statement when understood in its deepest sense.

As the word "always" suggests, He is not present in time, He is time. I am with you all-ways - God is present in every way, how can Reality abandon you?


Immortal and infinite

Does "immortal" mean everlasting life? No such thing! To be immortal is to be im-mortal, that is, not mortal, not living - and thus incapable of death.

Similarly, "infinite" means not finite; it does not mean "immeasurably large".
